Schar Gluten Free Finger SandwichEasy one-bite hors d’oeuvres made with gluten-free Schar bread in honor of Celiac Disease awareness month. A healthy hostess hack!

Finger sandwiches are my favorite one-bite hors d’oeuvres.

In honor of May being Celiac Disease awareness month, I put together some gluten-free sandwiches that you can serve at your next gathering while accommodating to your guest’s dietary restrictions.

These are made with Schär’s gluten-free Artisan Baker Multigrain BreadSchär is a leading maker of gluten-free products in Europe and now sell over 40 gluten-free products in the United States including bread crumbs, pizza crust and crackers. As a dietitian, I am thrilled to see that there are reliable gluten-free products becoming more widely available.

There is a lot of noise in the nutrition space surrounding “gluten-free.”

The truth is that those with Celiac Disease or a gluten-sensitivity/intolerance, should be avoiding gluten. The word “gluten-free” is often made synonymous with healthy. However, this isn’t necessarily true. While there are a plethora of nutritious foods that are naturally gluten free – think fruits, vegetables, nuts and grilled fish, there are also products on the market that are gluten-free but not necessarily nutritious.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that requires individuals eliminate gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

Ingesting gluten, for these individuals, can lead to a damaged small intestine and subsequent nutrient deficiencies. Gluten can be found in some unlikely foods including soy sauce, certain candies, beer, sauces and gravies.

I love finger-sandwiches because they are easy to throw together when you have little time on hand, and you can get creative!

This is what I consider a “healthy hostess hack”.
